1880 purchased as P Morgan

Post by collectinsince65 » Sat Sep 21, 2019 10:46 pm

Hey all
1880 purchased as P Morgan
Thought it was nice strike and grade as presented
No reverse image was provided
Will post the reverse early in the week when I can
Turns out when you flip it it is a CC
Extremely THICK CC
Coin is not magnetic and appears to be of higher grade
Does not match any of the few 1880 cc rev of 78 listed here
Thoughts
Thank you
Mike

I don't like the coin's overall "look". My gut reaction to seeing it was "fake".
When in doubt... don't.

Looks fake to me. The date gives it away.

I always use the Neodymium test and the ping test which you can find on Youtube.

It only took a second to realize this was a fake. Gotta study the devices more. The date was instant.
